Anotace

Unlike most books on the subject, this concise and accessible introduction stands back from the controversy to present an informative and even-handed account of what is really at stake. Reveals how engagements between science and religion have historically involved harmony as well as conflict. Explains philosophical arguments about realism, laws of nature, and miracles. Illuminates modern debates about quantum physics, cosmology, neuroscience, and evolutionary ethics, asking about their political as well as their religious significance. Examines historical episodes such as the Galileo affair, Charles Darwin's own religious and scientific odyssey, the Scopes 'Monkey Trial' of 1925, and the recent Dover Area School Board case. The debate between science and religion is never out of the news: emotions run high, fuelled by polemical bestsellers like The God Delusion and, at the other end of the spectrum, high-profile campaigns to teach 'Intelligent Design' in schools. Yet there is much more to the debate than the clash of these extremes. As Thomas Dixon shows in this balanced and thought-provoking introduction, many have seen harmony rather than conflict between faith and science. He explores not only the key philosophical questions that underlie the debate, but also the social, political, and ethical contexts that have made 'science and religion' such a fraught and interesting topic in the modern world, offering perspectives from non-Christian religions and examples from across the physical, biological, and social sciences.. Along the way, he examines landmark historical episodes such as the trial of Galileo by the Inquisition in 1633, and the famous debate between 'Darwin's bulldog' Thomas Huxley and Bishop Wilberforce in Oxford in 1860. The Scopes 'Monkey Trial' in Tennessee in 1925 and the Dover Area School Board case of 2005 are explained with reference to the interaction between religion, law, and education in modern America. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable. Readership: Anyone interested in current debates about the relationship between science and religion, from students of philosophy, science, or theology, to teachers and the clergy. General readers seeking a more balanced account of the debate than recent bestselling polemics such as The God Delusion.
